Easy {Holiday} Cookies and Cream Fudge

I’m sure you’re knee-deep in flour, sugar and chocolate baking all sorts of goodies for the season.

Maybe a new party just popped up and you need a quick and easy treat to bring.

Look no further! No thermometers involved in making this fudge. It is easy. E-A-S-Y.

I found these great Oreos and bought them, knowing that I would bake with them–just not knowing what I would bake with them. But how could I pass them up? You could easily make this with regular Oreos too, for a more classic look.

Then I saw an easy white chocolate fudge on Averie’s site…which I love, and saw that she adapted it from Amanda’s site…which I also love. So pretty much it was meant to be. The red filling mixed in with the fudge and made this so extremely festive. I just love it! Tastes great too!

Easy Holiday Cookies and Cream Fudge
adapted from Love Veggies and Yoga and Fake Ginger

2 1/2 cups white chocolate chips, divided
one 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
3 cups winter Oreo cookies, roughly chopped
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Line a 8 or 9-inch square pan with parchment paper or foil.
2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt 2 1/4 cups of the white chocolate chips (reserve 1/4 cup) with the sweetened condensed milk. Stir frequently to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan and burning.
3. Once the chips are melted and the mixture is combined, stir in the vanilla extract. Add the chopped Oreos and stir until combined.
4. Spread into your lined pan and sprinkle with reserved white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Press them in lightly so they will stick.
5. Stick the fudge in the freezer for two hours or more until it is fully firmed up. Slice (might want to make them small–they are rich!) and serve at room temperature. Store in fridge or freezer.

Verdict: Delicious! I’m storing these in the freezer to send to work my husband for a Christmas party, but I might have eaten a couple.
Husband’s take: “I could live on that stuff.” He says that a lot.
Changes I would make: None! It would be fun to play with different colored Oreos as they appear during the year though!
Difficulty: Easy. Duh….have you been listening?

What is your favorite kind of fudge?

    These look festive and fun and oh so colorful. These might be good with mint flavored Oreos? I think they make a mint flavored one! I know Newman’s Own does!

    Yay for no-candy-thermometer-needed fudge! This looks delicious–love the color from the holiday Oreos. :) And cookies and cream fudge actually is my favorite variety! So perfect.

  13. Suzi — December 12, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Oh my gosh, these are unbelievably yummy looking. Is that a cherry filling in the oreos? I bet these are delicious.

  21. Nancy — December 12, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    I think I will make this for our cookie exchange with your mother- don’t tell! She’ll think I came up with the idea :)

  22. Baker Street — December 12, 2011 at 9:15 pm

  23. Tracey — December 12, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I meant to make this when Amanda posted it, and completely forgot. Thanks for the reminder, I love your variation!

  24. Claire @ Claire K Creations — December 12, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    Ooh how festive. I don’t think they’ll be selling those down here in Australia but I guess I could add a little red food colouring. Maybe a marbled effect would be nice. Yum!

  25. Blackbookkitchendiaries — December 13, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    I am loving this already. They look wonderful:) thank you for sharing.

  26. Sammie — December 14, 2011 at 1:32 am

    Awwee..this looks like a perfect festive fudge, Rachael!

  28. Mom — December 14, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Love your photos! I have to say that when you mentioned these, they didn’t sound that good to me. You know me, not much of a sweet tooth. When I saw your finished product, though, I’m sure I wouldn’t have been able to resist a nibble. Or maybe two nibbles. Maybe you’ll still have a couple in the freezer when we come to visit :)

  29. CulinarilyCourtney — December 27, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    What a great recipe! I made Chocolate Mint Candy Cane Fudge earlier this month that had a pretty much identical base to this fudge. It is so nice (and so bad, for my waistline anyway haha) that fudge like this is so easy to make! First time on your site, and I really love it :)

      Thank you! That mint fudge sounds amazing!
